MAYFIELD TO RUN NO. 66 FOR REMAINDER OF SEASON

KANNAPOLIS, N.C. (October 22, 2007) -- Haas CNC Racing announced today that Jeremy Mayfield will drive the team's No. 66 NASCAR Nextel Cup entry for the remainder of the 2007 season, beginning this weekend at Atlanta Motor Speedway.

Mayfield will also drive for Haas CNC Racing during the 2008 Sprint Cup season although the car he will drive has not been determined.

"I'm very excited about this opportunity with Haas CNC Racing," Mayfield said. "Every indication is that this is a team with unlimited potential. The shop is state-of-the-art, the equipment is first rate, there is an outstanding relationship with Hendrick Motorsports here, and it's my challenge to make it all equal success on the track," he said. "I'm ready to see how far I can take it."

"We're very happy to welcome Jeremy Mayfield to Haas CNC Racing," team general manager Joe Custer said. "Jeremy has a proven success record and we will be relying on his skill, experience, and leadership to improve our overall team performance. Jeremy's not far removed from being a Chase contender and I know he's motivated to get back to that level," Custer said. "We're confident in our equipment and Jeremy knows how to get it done, so this is a very exciting opportunity for us."
